7:05 am
we are not afraid is the slogan you hear again and again around london today. amy. >> all right, terry, thank you. as we just heard, that suspect was known to authorities. there was no meet claim of responsibility but british prime minister theresa may called the violence a sick and depraved terrorist attack. let's go to abc's alex marquardt with the latest on the investigation right now. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, amy. that's right. he was also a british national who was known to the intelligence services and this morning the authorities are saying that he was inspired by what they're calling international islamist terrorism. overnight raids carried out in london, the city of birmingham and elsewhere as police and intelligence services hunt for information on the background of the attacker and any possible ties to terror groups. the uk's top counterterrorism official announcing this morning eight were arrested in the six raids carried out. this birmingham apartment searched by the authorities, it's still unclear what links thos

attacker. a witness would works near that apartment saying, quote, the man from london lived here. the bbc reporting that the gray hyundai su vuchlt that the attacker used to plow into pedestrians on westminster bridge was rented in a nearby suburb. little has been revealed about the identity of the attacker. seen here after he was shot by police. >> continues to go on with our investigation that this attacker acted alone inspired by international terrorism. ♪ >> reporter: atack happening on the anniversary of last year's deadly isis bombings in brussels. counterterror officials say 13 plots have been thwarted in the uk in the past four years but stopping a lone wolf using such basic terror tactics can be next to impossible. >> it's very hard to prevent an attack if you like a low tack attack happening once an individual is inspired to carry one out. if you haven't got the intelligence to know it is happening it is very, very hard to preve
7:07 am
once the attack actually takes place. >> reporter: until now the uk has been spared the terror attacks that we've seen across europe over the past two years. for now officials say there are no known plots in the works, but the threat level is at its second highest level meaning that sadly another attack is highly likely. robin. >> alec, thank you. we'll bring in martha raddatz who we know that authorities are saying that attacks seems to be linked to islamic terrorism. you're saying isis is maybe getting squeezed and getting desperate. >> reporter: they are. if you're looking at what is happening on the battlefields it looks bad for isis and have lost more than 60% of the terrain they once controlled in iraq. 30% in syria and they've lost tens of thousands of their fighters in the targeted strikes. but it really does seem that the greater the success that the u.s. and its allies are having on the battlefield the more
7:08 am
you've heard those isis leaders say to followers if they can't carry out attacks with explosives or firearms they should use knives or cars or whatever they can. >> are they still largely recruiting online and if so, how is the administration responding. >> reporter: secretary of state rex tillerson said this week the goal is to stop isis from getting its message out. but that is a very tough goal. although they've made progress but if you just look at the numbers in britain alone, they have some 850 people who have traveled to syria and iraq to support isis and about half of those have now returned to britain and as we have seen far too many time, robin, it only takes one to reek horrible destruction. >> you're right, martha. thank you, michael. >> security here at home is stepping up in response to the attack and pierre thomas has more from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, michael. some major cities including new york are stepping up
7:09 am
landmarks but this morning our sources are saying there's no intelligence pointing to a specific plot here at home. but make no mistake stabbings and attacks by vehicles are among the biggest concerns law enforcement officials have in terms of terror. four different bulletins warning about attacks involving vehicles or knives. what isis has been calling for and it's working. there have been at least 14 vehicle attacks since 2014 including the horrific massacre in nice, france, the berlin christmas market nightmare and here at home at ohio state when a suspect hit pedestrians and then stabbed multiple people, michael. >> pierre, how would the u.s. law enforcement, how are they responding? >> reporter: the good news is u.s. law enforcement has been thinking about and preparing for these kind of attacks for years. in new york city, during the times scare new year's celebration dump trucks and others were put up to prevent access and dump trucks were used at the republican national
7:10 am
traveling along streets full of pedestrians. how do you protect those people? >> we'll have a lot more on the attack just ahead. now let's turn to the battle over health care. the house is scheduled to hold that crucial vote on the republican bill today. and negotiations are coming down to the wire. our congressional correspondent mary bruce has the latest, joins us from capitol hill. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, it was a late night of negotiating here and this morning republican leaders are still struggling to unite their party. now, there are signs of optimism but still no firm agreement. >> easy, guys. >> reporter: overnight republicans scrambling to negotiate as it hits a wall. >> we think there are ways to improve it that will get enough votes, but so far we don't have any language. >> reporter: the bill's opponents huddling late into the night but this morning still no deal. >> i'm not going to stay up all night trying
7:11 am
out without anticipating a vote tomorrow. >> reporter: signs of progress from the conservative opponents but changes offered to satisfy the right risk jeopardizing the moderates and this morning, the list of nos is growing. by our count at least 30 republicans still oppose. more than enough votes to kill the bill in the house. it's been a frantic push to the finish. >> guy, stop pushing. >> reporter: the president and vice president have been working the phones making in person pitches but it doesn't seem to be working. >> it's not going to pass as it stands right now unless they make major changes to it. >> reporter: hold-outs are demanding chicagos. among other things conservatives want the bill to further lower premiums. republican leaders and the white house are open to negotiations but they're also adamant, this is their best shot to overhaul obamacare. >> there's no plan b. there's a plan a and plan a. we'll get this done. >> reporter: but it's unclear if they can overcome the resistance.
7:12 am
mr. mr. president, if the house and people like their doctor can they keep their doctor? >> reporter: the president is lobbying hard and he'll meet with conservative hold-outs at the white house while on capitol hill the speaker will huddle with his members as they try to strike a deal. robin. >> all that going on, still expecting a vote by tonight? >> reporter: yeah, that vote is still a go even though many republicans say this bill still isn't going anywhere. >> mary, thank you. all right, now to that stunning moment in washington. a top lawmaker on the house intelligence committee telling the press that surveillance of the trump team may have happened indianapolis dentally. president trump is responding and abc's senior white house correspondent cecilia vega has all of those details. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: amy, good morning. this was an extraordinary public display of what is usually secret information and it has reignited the debate over the validity of the president's wiretapping claims. he says he feels somewhat
7:13 am
vindicated but so many others on capitol hill say not so fast. >> good morning. >> reporter: the top republican on the house intelligence committee delivering this claim in front of the cameras. >> on numerous occasions the intelligence community incidentally collected information about u.s. citizens involved in the trump transition. >> reporter: devin nunes says during the surveillance of foreign nationals, u.s. intelligence officials may have inadvertently picked up the communications of president trump's transition team, possibly even the president himself. >> i guess it all depends on the one definition of spying. i mean clearly it bothers me enough, i'm not comfortable with it. >> reporter: nunes offering few details but saying the communications are not related to the fbi's investigation into the campaign and russia. making the surprise announcement to the media even before he told the intelligence community or other members of his committee. nunes, a prominent member of the president's transition team, then went straight to the oval
7:14 am
directly to the president himself. and then he did another round of press. >> what i've read bothers me and i think it should bother the president himself and his team. >> reporter: the president calling it vindication for his baseless twitter claims that president obama wiretapped him. >> do you feel vindicated by chairman nunes? >> i somewhat do. i must tell you i somewhat do relationship even if president trump was inadvertently caught in legal surveillance that's a far cry from the allegation that his predecessor illegally wiretapped him. the top democrat on the house intelligence committee blasting his republican counterpart calling for an independent investigation. >> there is still no evidence that the president was wiretapped by his predecessor. >> reporter: and the calls for an independent investigation are growing louder and it is not
7:15 am
senator john mccain now says congress no longer has the credibility to independently investigate russia's role in the election, robin. >> all right. thank you so much, we'll bring in our chief white house correspondent jon karl. i know you have a lot to say about that. you heard what cecilia just said about what congressman nunes said. an extraordinary moment. what has been the response from the white house to his statements? >> reporter: well, you've heard the president say he feels somewhat vindicated. but as chairman nunes made it clear, he was talking about so-called incidental collection, absolutely nothing that he says he has found as he said would prove the allegations that trump tower was wiretapped. more seriously. the impact of his actions yesterday of chairman nunes' actions yesterday raise questions about whether or not his committee can conduct a bipartisan and impartial investigation about the russian interference in the electric. he ran down to the white house yesterday to brief the president on what he found.
7:16 am
you would expect a white house staffer to do, not the chairman of a committee that is investigating the white house itself or associates of the white house. >> there was a lot of talk yesterday about paul manafort and what he -- the supposed ties between him anna billionaire in russia and possible links with putin. is the white house concerned about these. >> reporter: i'll let you hear directly from the white house on this. i don't sense any concern at all and asked about it yesterday. here's the exchange. >> i don't know to look back right now and to say, if we knew knew what we know then would we have done things differently. that's a question the president would have to weigh. >> you're saying he didn't know. >> of course not. >> something he would want to know, wouldn't he? >> maybe. maybe not. >> so, the white house is aing that the president didn't know about manafort's connections and maybe, maybe not wouldn't even have wanted to know about them. >> how about the health care bill, of course, that's very much
7:17 am
possibly and what does president trump feel his chances are at this point? >> reporter: you heard mary bruce say there are now more than enough republicans against this to kill the bill but i tell you, do not count out president trump on this. he is a few votes shy, maybe a dozen but i believe that he -- i think he's got a good chance of getting it done and they are confident here. >> thanks so much. going to go to ginger with severe weather that is moving into the plains. >> that's right, robin. you know that same low pressure system now in the rockies, in the wake of it we've got this in santa maria, california, north of santa barbara, cold air funnel, a little less dangerous than a tornado and can see some circulation. turbulent atmosphere. that low moves across tonight that line starts up in parts of the texas and oklahoma panhandles and has to look out for damaging winds and isolated tornadoes and tomorrow through the day dallas, houston, little

happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding.
